The flying tomato has added another accolade to his CV: Shaun White is the latest superstar to grace the cover of super stylish US men’s magazine Nylon Guys – little brother title to fave ladies title Nylon. Writer Luke Crissell paints a unique portrait of the Olympic Gold winner, as he hangs out with the skate and snow wonderkid at home in San Diego – complete with photoshoot by Kevin Zacher and simultaneous pool party.
Alongside former cover stars Pete Wentz, Hayden Christiansen, Pharrell Williams and Bathing Ape’s Nigo it’s an interesting cover choice for the mag and equally cements Shaun’s status as now a true mainstream celeb. Although, from reading this interview, he’s still unfazed and having a ball.

Nylon Guys also seems to be moving more in the skate, snow, and surf direction too: there’s a profile of Insight US head Jesse Faen, they head to Fiji for Nixon’s annual High Tide Hold ‘Em event to play poker, fish, surf and drink beer, and there’s a rather tasty pick of arty summer skateboard decks.
